If you haven’t heard the news, hemp oil is a rich source of CBD, or cannabidiol, which has numerous medicinal properties. Although hemp is made from cannabis plants, it’s not the same thing as marijuana. If you are looking to get some of the benefits from hemp, this is a great way to do so. Hemp oil can be used to find relief from arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, schizophrenia, PTSD, MS, epilepsy, and chronic pain. Hemp oil is an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and anti-nausea treatment that works well for many people.

CBD is creating a big stir everywhere in America, as more and more people are looking for answers for their health problems. A great deal of the research that is being done on hemp and cannabis is actually a type of relearning. Cannabis used to be used to treat illnesses until it was made an illegal drug. Most research is focusing on cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the two most common cannabinoids out of the more than 100 that are present in cannabis.

THC is the part of the cannabis plant that gives you that mellow, high feeling. CBD, on the other hand, is the second most common cannabinoid produced by this plant and it has wide applications. This means that you can make/use a CBD oil or salve and not get that disjointed feeling, nor will you experience feelings of lethargy. It also won’t give you the munchies.

One preclinical trial done at the California Pacific Medical Center showed that CBD killed breast cancer cells by regulating a gene (ID-1) that has been found to be in several types of aggressive cancers. When this gene is cut out of the picture, cancer cells die on their own.

Although some people believe that THC works best in conjunction with CBD, that the entire plant must be used for it to be effective, studies have not yet shown this to be true. There is still so much to learn about this wonderful plant that Mother Nature obviously put here for a reason.

By the way, although medical marijuana is legal in many states and more and more states are legalizing personal use, isolated CBD is legal in all 50 states since you cannot get high from this compound. If you don’t know where to find CBD rich strains of cannabis, you can buy it online. Again, since it’s free from THC, it is perfectly legal.

Are you ready? Here are the recipes for CBD herbal oil as well as cannabis salve.
